you screw it up buddy. it was about unit. the left and center are much better at national unity than the right. the right sees a national tragedy like this far off in bengha benghazi, not in new york city, at a very exposed position which could have happened no matter how many troops he would there. we don't blame it on everybody even know it was new york right into the heart land. i think there's a difference in how people react. i think the left was much more nationalistic. how is that for a statement? thank you ne. ra and ron reagan. it's funny it's is frick yin true. >>> john boehner sass the president was to annihilate the gop. maybe if republicans weren't in a perpetual war with african-americans, latinos, women, and young people politically at least they wouldn't to worry about being annihilated. >>> also the pentagon officially lifted the ban on women in combat today. in reality women have already been in combat for some time, certainly exposed to enemy fire as tammy duckworth can attest to. >>> everyone agrees now is the best time to two decades to push for gun safety laws.
the evidence. of course, there is another option, republicans could just do what the congress of the united states is supposed to do. they could pay the bills it has racked up. and if it wants to pay fewer bills in the future and spend less money it can cut spending or raise taxes, which it writes the next budget. you know, the time you're supposed to do that. you know the way we have been doing it for the entire rest of the nation's history before john boehner and the republicans took over the house. during the entire rest of the nation's history when we never came close to purposely faulting on our deletes when we weren't a ludicrous banana republic? >>> hagel for defense chief. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with president obama, this country's commander in chief. start with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't wa
, very troubling on the nation of israel. he has not been a friend to israel, and in my view the united states should stand unshakeablely with the nation of israel, and he has consistently advocated weakness with respect to our enemies. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. he has long severed his ties with the republican party. this is an in your face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. >> well, john mccain a fellow vietnam war vet, he released a statement after today's announcement saying, quote, chuck hagel served our nation with honor in vietnam and i congratulate him on this nomination. i have serious kerns about the positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years. you listen to some of this vitriol it's like he's charles lindberg or something. i have been to israel so many times. you have doves in the community over there, you have moderates, people like perez who is almost go

not only in the united states but around the world. thank you for your compassion and leadership always. i'm curious. in the past weeks we've seen the french respond decisively to the situation in mali. the african union has fought with in somalia. do you see this as an advancement of multilateralism in combatting islamic extremism in the middle east, in africa? and what more can we ask from allies in that area? >> well, congratulations, grace. that's an excellent question because i think that's exactly what we're coping with right now. i'm very proud of the work we did with african nations to stand up, financially support, and train the force that has driven al shabab out of the dominant position that it had. that meant putting american trainers working with troops from uganda, eventually kenya, advising some other countries that were willing to put in assets, it took money. it took time. but we just recognized the new somali government which could never have been possible without american support and multilateralism. because the u.n. was strongly behind it. we got other nations to invest

president roosevelt was actually preparing to attend the founding conference of the united nations. on april the 12th, he felt a terrible pain in the back of his head, suffered a stroke, and died. he was 61 and he was still president. and while the senator from kentucky clearly has little time for president roosevelt, listen to what churchill said just five days after his american friend and ally had passed away. his love for his own country, his respect for its constitution were always evident, but added to these were the beatings of that generous heart which was always stirred to anger and to action by spectacles of aggression and oppression by the strong against the weak. that is precisely what the current president is trying to do in light of what happened to those children at an elementary school in connecticut. he doesn't want to be king. he just wants to stop the killing. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> high noon for guns. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> ghood evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let at the start with this. it use
. a lot of people around the world still remember the united states, even though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency, for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by people in iran, will be received by certain communities in iran, but there is a big divide in iran. there's the qods force which feels very empowered and very aggressive. if he's extending an olive branch, i think there will be some parties in iran that will be taking it and other parties that will just be seeing this as some sort of trick because this administration has also been very tough on iran, particularly as far as sanctions are concerned. >> steve? first of all, do you think the message will get to the person it's intended for? >> i think there is. i think there's an audience of one, with due respect to richard whom i adore. but i think ayatollah khamenei is the person barack obama was trying to reach with this.
, united states of new york, secretary of state, the great he is appointed position on the planet. she's given it up, as he said last night, very importantly i thought, i would like you to stay. it was her decision to walk after four years. he could have stayed for eight or at least a lot more than she stayed. what does it mean to you -- i don't think that was a gold watch ceremony last night. i think it was a portent, a statement. >> i agree. i think it was an attempt by the president to bestow a little favor on hillary clinton. look, joe biden, the vice president, who a lot of people also believe really wants to run, i believe he wants to run, and i think he's been sending a lot of signals out there that he's very much interested in getting excited. he's gotten a lot ever big assignments and gotten a lot of favor from the president of the united states. i think this was an attempt to even the flaying field. the job she ended up taking was a lot higher profile in the end than vice president which a lot of hillary land really wanted him to make her his running mate and he didn't. he ga
that's come to the united states has come here for the same reason, looking for work. that's all. >> the chinese were the most crime-free community in history. they don't cause anybody any trouble. thank you, chuck todd. let's turn to somebody who knows he's a member of congress from that part of the country right down near the warder, joaquin castro, democrat from texas. this is "hardball" and we're talking about whether they will get a bill that passes both houses, the one controlled by the senate and one by the house. do you think the majority led by people like, well, john boehner and cantor are actually going to put their fingers on an immigration bill and pass it? >> i think they will, chris, and i hope they will. i think especially with the november election, the american penal made it clear i believe that they want the congress and they want the president to tackle this issue and to finally get it done. i think what we've seen in the last few days is very promising first with the senate proposal and now the president's proposal. at least we know we're having a serious dis
negotiating. he may have to at the end of the day. >> predictions time. will the president of the united states when we run out of money under the debt ceiling and he's forced to let people lay off, closing down the national monuments and parks, will he let boehner and his crowd on that? >> on the default he's going to be more critical. >> which comes first? >> i think the debt ceiling may come first. >> will he let the government shut down like clinton did? >> i don't think so. because john boehner doesn't want it shut down. >> the tea party guys want it to. >> this come to do you have the votes. and you have to govern. this is what it's all about. the president is responsible for governing. shutting down the government is not governing. i think it hurts the president harder than it hurts anybody. >> gingrich was -- >> in '94 through '96, newt gingrich promised to shut down the government. boehner has vowed to keep it open. if the president makes threats, it's going to hurt the president. >> he may not be able to keep a single promise he makes because he can't deliver the votes. >> the
respect might be in 0rd for the president of the united states from this guy, talking about a guy not having guts. it's street corner talk from rubio. your thoughts. we're talking about guns here. >> we're talking about guns here, yes, but we all swear to uphold the constitution. i believe in upholding the constitution. the supreme court already came out that a person has a right to even a gun, but you also know that we also have the right to pass laws to protect our citizens. so, i mean, this is the fear that they keep throwing out there, and they're not trying to get to someone that's a moderate. they're going straight to their hard core right people. that's why they lost the presidency, that's why they lost a few seats in the house. they have to start, excuse me, coming together to get not just on the gun issue, on an awful lot of issues. look what happened the other day with sandy. it was democrats that got that bill over the line. but, you know, it should be working together for all of the american people, and right now all the polls are showing the american people, including

or employee of the united states government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the united states government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition shall be guilty of a felony. the bill calls for punishment of up to five years in prison for it or a hefty fine for anyone who enforces federal gun laws, law that is don't even exist. you're talking nullification, all the elements of the bad old days before the sill war. the idea that somebody in a state can absolutely just arrest government -- this is fort sumper in. we're not making this up. we're not fishing for it. these people are out there shouting from the rooftops about this nonsense. >> they're out there and what's sad is the nra used to actually support gun control and the irony is, and we covered this on the grio today, back in the 'six when the black panthers were saying there's a right to bear arms because they wanted to do armed patrols, it was people like governor ronald reagan who pushed for gun control, who signed the mumford act which made it illegal to ca
of that, we've got to do something about violence in connecticut and in the world and in the united states. we've got to do something about the proliferation of these high-impact guns that really have no other real use than to kill someone. that's what they're designed for. they're very good at it. then you add in these high-capacity magazines. a young man could walk into a school, bring a bunch of those things, set himself up to kill as many people as he possibly can, and ultimately die as was planned. these are circumstances and eye vents that should alter our view in america. we should do everything we can to make ourselves safer, and this idea that we can't do that just isn't true. for instance, in the 1930s because machine guns had fallen in the hands of criminals we decided nobody should have a machine gun. guess what, people don't get killed anymore with machine guns. we're not talking about incidences with hand grenades. we can make practical decisions. we can pass practical laws where most people would agree let's get that done. let's get rid of these magazines. no one should be a
is there's going to be a fight in washington about whether the united states will be able to compromise at all in order to get a diplomatic deal or whether we have expectations that iran is going to get rid of all its enriched uranium, even levels that are not necessary for creating a nuclear weapon that would make a deal impossible. and what this is really about is essentially deciding how bad war would be so we figure out how much we're willing to push for a deal. that's what a lot of this fight is really about. >> i think that's it. i agree with you completely, peter. and, sam, you agree it's about weaponization and what stage do you cut off this or what stage the iranians say we're not going to create weapons, can you live with it. we're not going to create weapons. we could, but we're not going to do it. right? >> but it's also about limiting the domestic political fallout of doing something like that. and, you know, the administration does need cover when they do pursue things like diplomacy with iran, when they hold back on putting forces into syria or trying to arm the syrian op
. first, he had to show the united states anti-doping agency that he was contrite, that he was serious about taking their findings as the new law of the land. that their findings about him were correct. he had to show he was serious about that, and if he did that, maybe they would lift the lifetime ban they had imposed upon him. the second thing he had to do was build public sympathy. try to remind people why they fell in love with lance armstrong in the first place. on the first front, failed miserably. he actually drew a line through the heart of the usada report. the heart of the report said that lance armstrong was actually a doping ringleader, that he wasn't just another cyclist who used peds, but that he organized his team to actually use dope. >> he wasn't accepting of that last night. >> no. he said absolutely not. and today they are not happy with that interview. on the second front about building public sympathy, i mean, my word, i felt like i was watching the titanic hit an iceberg. i felt like oprah kept trying to help him, like throwing him lifelines, like try to make your
. but how about britain? surely the united kingdom must be making some progress. sadly not. the british government has just announced that its gdp has shrunk to 0.3% and economists now predict a triple dip recession right across the country. again, britain did precisely what paul ryan has been proposing for this country and with disastrous consequences. so are republicans now prepared to accept the evidence? is paul ryan ready to admit that ice. >> da economics would never work in practice? sadly not. in fact, speaker john boehner has just given him the job of drawing up a new budget that will completely erase the federal deficit in just ten years. and only through spending cuts and no new taxes whatsoever. to do this mr. ryan would have to cut every government operation by one-sixth or if he choose not to touch entitlements or defense, he would have to cut every government operation by almost 40%. this country would be plunged into a recession. and that's the ryan budget. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> mad house. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> g
of the president of the united states. i think is tiching it a little bit in hillary's favor. the job she ended uptaking was a lot higher profiled in the end than the vice president. which a lot of hillary wanted her to make him his running mate. he gave her an even higher profile in a lot of wayings. and now he's giving her a huge boost in 2016. >> well, my question to you, since you raised, joy u will joe biden quilt if she runs? will he pull out of the race -- if he's in the race for a year or two, will he pull out? >> you know, chris, i think the game between biden and hillary has been this. i don't think they would primary each other. but i think each of them has been trying to put facts on the ground. he's trying to put those facts out there. i think if she makes a strong move to run, i think biden will back down. the president is going to have to have a kfrgts with one of these two and i say i've got to back one of you. the president wants his legacy to be another democratic president. >> howard, if you don't know, you don't know. but my question is you and i lived through mccarthy, kenn
